Saturday July 20 - 4WDABC Show 'n Shine

Heads up for those with rigs in the Lower Mainland of BC this weekend. I've been almost every year now. It has now become much more than a Land Cruiser event with multiple 4x4 clubs and many non-club members participating. Lots of great raffel prizes with the proceeeds going to charity. I am hoping ...

Re: Welcome to the "Last Word Café".

I see a lot of scare tactics in this thread with the intent to make people believe they cannot legally import a vehicle, use it for some time and then sell it when they want or need to. I have seen business owners do the same for those of us who import our own parts. In my mind, the law is clear. If...

Re: Welcome to the "Last Word Café".

Just though I would correct a bit of mis-information there about the number of vehicles any one person can sell before they are considered a defacto dealer. This is right from the Act. Not a PDF which is not a legal document. Also, you will note that the "information" PDF that was earlier quoted in ...

BC FSR Access Dsicussion Paper

I found this posted up on another forum: Do you use B.C.’s resource roads for work, recreation, or because you live in or visit rural communities off the public road system? If so, help us serve you better by contributing to the Natural Resource Road Act Project to improve resource road laws and reg...

Re: Court case tomorrow re Delica lights in Manitoba

A government of BC CVSE Inspector made a very useful comment on IVOAC: http://forum.ivoac.ca/showthread.php?p=37999#post37999 You should have taken the Federal Regulations in which allows the use of the PROPER Ecoded lights. I can't comment on your specific lights because they may not be compliant. ...

Re: Write email to ICBC Feedback to have the RHD study Removed

I was about to suggest the same. I just fired off an email to ICBC using their general contact email address and have asked all the Cruiser Heads to do the same. To whom it may concern, I have noted that ICBC continues to have the same unsubstantiated claims about Right-Hand Drive on your web page: ...

Looks like a standard reply, meaning if we think your message is interesting enough we will reply to it.

Those of us who are association members can always take it up a notch and write to the Board of Directors and also bring it to the AGM.

Re: BCAA - Right-hand drive vehicles – right for B.C.?

Below is my comment to BCAA. I urge others to also write to them, member or not. I've been a member for over 20 years now. I have just read the article “Right-hand drive vehicles – right for B.C.?” and as a long time BCAA member, I am shocked to see BCAA parroting the same propaganda that CADA has b...

CAVI Import offensive

I didn't know that CAVI had gotten a bill in the works to open up the import vehicle market. For those of you who want something newer, this is one to get your MP to support: http://forum.ivoac.ca/showthread.php?t=3716 I've posted links in the same thread to the CAVI presentation to the Senate commi...

Re: CADA Seeking federal ban on RHD imports in Canada!

Regarding my earlier post about forming a BC non-profit, interest is too low. Dropping off this thread. Good luck! I am one of the founding members of the IVOAC National Committee and am one of the volunteer mods there now. I have seen commitment and participation at IVOAC go up and down depending ...

Re: CADA Seeking federal ban on RHD imports in Canada!

Apart from writing our MP, &c., What are we going to do when they bring in their lawyers? Do we have anything beyond a potential media campaign? How organised are we? Falco. To answer your question, we are loosely organized. We are a movement and that is our strength. We come together in small grou...
